Skankilicious (Antonella, for those new to the party) has ties to Washington, DC. I don’t know if I can handle that. She’s my #2 villain of the season (behind Perla-hater Gina), and the last thing I want to hear is an entire city rooting for her.
From today’s Washington Post:
D.C. Gets a Voice on ‘Idol’
Finally — our own “American Idol” contestant to root for! Antonella Barba , a junior at Catholic University, is one of the 24 finalists announced on the hit show Wednesday night.For those who’ve only been watching casually, Barba is the coltish 20-year-old from New Jersey who aced a joint first tryout in N.Y.C. with best friend Amanda Coluccio . During auditions in Hollywood, Coluccio was caught on reality-cam declaring that she beat out another girl “because God likes good people.” Well, pride goeth before a fall, and all that — Barba made the finals; Coluccio did not.
More about Barba: She’s majoring in architecture; she plays piano and violin; she wears men’s deodorant because “girls’ deodorant isn’t strong enough.” And we’re told her friends will be gathering in the campus student center to watch her live TV debut next week — on Ash Wednesday.
